"The 2020 Health Power 100"
In City & State’s Health Power 100, we highlight the stakeholders in New York City and New York state who are formulating the answers to these policy questions – as well as countless other medical matters, from combating AIDS and opioids to contending with the anti-vaccination movement. Since his appointment as president and CEO in 2003, Kenneth Davis, MD, CEO and president of the Mount Sinai Health System has reversed Mount Sinai’s fiscal troubles and spearheaded growth, including a 2013 merger with Continuum Health Partners that created the Mount Sinai Health System, one of the country’s largest nonprofit networks. A noted scientist and researcher in the fields of psychiatry and Alzheimer’s disease, Davis also weighs in on policy issues, including the risks of marijuana and the threat of the “public charge rule.”
